Overwhelmed? Take A Single Step

Have you ever faced a whopping, great mountain that appeared unsurpassable?

Have you ever looked at a big, hairy goal and thought ‘back away from the insane idea you crazy person’?

That’s a little bit how I feel at the moment.

You see I’ve committed to writing my first ebook.  I’ve mulled over the concept of creating info products, questioning their value and analysing what provides readers with the most benefits.

I was and still am only willing to head down the path if I think I can offer something of real value.

Now I have an idea. A concept I’ve stewed over. The outline and basic structure have been drafted. It’s time to really begin the journey of writing it. A journey that is a little bit nerve wrecking.

Are you attempting something that feels overwhelming?

I am reminded of a quote that we can focus on while working towards our goals.

‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. – Lao-tzu’

Let’s work together. Let’s attack our goals with great zeal. One step at a time.

Tell me about your goal in the comments. If you’re interested we can even organise a weekly check in to assess our progress and encourage each other.

Would you like me to post more about my ebook writing experience over the coming weeks? Also, if you’ve written an ebook before I’d love to hear any tips, tools or strategies you’d recommend!

  1. Feeling overwhelmed is one of the hardest things to deal with.

    The world comes at us so fast. We need all the help we can get for getting back on track.

    My goal is to get my blogs back in good shape and help others to benefit from the information I have to share.

    Good luck with your project.


    • Hi Teresa,
      Welcome to my blog! Thank you for commenting!
      Best wishes for getting your blogs back on track. Do you have specific goals relating to this?

  2. This is really good for me to read right now. One baby step at a time. It’s what I teach, but sometimes forget for myself.

    • Hi Linda,
      Amazing how we ‘forget’ these things isn’t it. Can I ask what you are working on at the moment?
      Thank you for reading and commenting. I hope you stop by again soon.
      Cheers, Caylie

  3. I believe once you start writing from your heart, you’ll have no problem writing your ebook.

    Good luck!!! Keep us posted.

    • Hi Rhonda,
      Thank you so much for your comment and suggestion.
      I will definitely keep you up to date on progress.

  4. Caylie,

    I could give you a hundred things I’m overwhelmed with, including getting a post out every day. But I finally settled on the idea for my first e-book and hope to finish my research this weekend. Would love to be part of an accountability group. Keep me posted.

    • Hi Joyce,
      Thank you so much for sharing. How wonderful that we are both starting our first e-books.
      Seeing as there are a few people keen on an accountability group I’m having a think of the best way to do it and then will be in touch for sure.
      So appreciate your being here.

  5. I’m trying to create a website using a new-to-me program. I’m overwhelmed, so I’m not even doing the non-programming part (writing the text, developing the lay-out) or studying the tutorials.

    It definitely feels like I have too much to do, so I’m doing nothing!

    If I had an accountability group, that could help. I could see (and actually make!) progress.

    • Hi Tammy,
      I’d be happy to work with you as an accountability buddy. So, what is your first goal? To read/watch the first tutorial by Tuesday?
      What program are you trying to use? Another reader may be able to help you.
      Thanks for sharing!

  6. sometimes my usual live overwhelms me
    to put all the information i gather during the day, the week together that they become useful tools for me

    my biggest goal is to be independent
